Children

Nothing is more important to the well being and learning experiences of children than good vision. We recommend a complete vision examination of all children before they enter school. We also recommend an examination schedule based on family history and specific needs of the child. The presence of certain risk factors may necessitate more frequent examinations.

We’re particularly concerned about the relationship between vision problems and learning difficulties. Vision problems can be the direct cause of learning disorders, and they can interfere with child’s ability to perform up to their potential.

The pediatric vision exam covers a wide range of eye health concerns and includes such child-specific interpretations of hyperopia, astigmatism, myopia, strabismus (cross-eyes), amblyopia, ocular motilities, focusing and binocular eye coordination.

We also educate parents and children about eye safety, particularly about protection for eyes during sports-related activities.
